When work is oppressive I daydream about jobs I wish that I had. I like working in teams to create a product that you can see the results in a short period of time. Immediate gratification for a job well done. Baking. I remember when I was a teenager, I worked in the kitchen at my local hospital. I was in awe of the baker. Her work space was a clean, powdery area that smelled awesome. She produced bread, cakes, pies and rolls. Everyone loved her. Who wouldn't want to be her? 

Pastry Chef Ethel at your service. My team is fabulous. We make divine cakes by dividing the work into cake, icing, decorative trims, and beautiful fondant. At Christmas we make a Gingerbread Village of the North Pole with a castle, elf-land, candy-cane trees, Santa's sleigh and toys aboard. In the summer we take the most luscious fruits and craft them with chocolate, liquors, and pate brisee into crafted pies and tarts.  

The Patty Beat can be found at  http://pattyabr.wordpress.com and The Fearless Cook resides at www.thefearlesscookingclub.com ready to take on my most feared items in the kitchen.
